Awnings are ideally suited to the our rural lifestyle, whether you’re in Castlemaine, Kyneton, Daylesford or Bendigo. They can offer great protection from the morning and afternoon sun, as well as allowing you to enjoy outside entertaining areas for extended times of the year.
Awnings are the most effective option for slowing down the heat entering your home. It can often mean the difference of 4-5 degrees, and that’s before you start up the air-conditioning! They can also add value to your home as they can complement both the interior look and the outdoor style of your home.
Awnings provide a number of weather related benefits; protecting furniture from sun-exposure, allow windows to allow a draft through a house despite rainfall, protecting glare on TVs and Computers or simply protecting old style window frames made of wood.
Awnings have the ability to “freshen up” the look of your windows. If you have an old awning that is still working perfectly, but the fabric is dated or mouldy, a “re-skin” or “re-cover is an inexpensive way to give it a new lease of life. An awning recover is often a third to a half of the price of a new one.
